I’m sure many of you are like me and have been insanely busy these last few weeks as summer wound down and school started back. Whether you have kids in school, are in school yourself or have a job that has anything to do with school, you’ve been busy. My job keeps me busy working with the local schools during the first few weeks on top of being in school myself. As such, my console/PC gaming time has dropped to a near extinct level, and yours may have too. But have no fear, I bring you glad tidings in the form of a classic game many of us grew up with and can be played on the go…X-Men Arcade for iPhone.

I really can’t count the number of hours, or quarters, I spent playing this game when I was a kid. I loved it and was pretty bummed when they started discontinuing the machine. So when I read about it a little over a month ago I downloaded it. I played it a few times but didn’t really get caught up in it until two weeks ago when school started in my area. I found myself playing every chance I got just to get my gaming fix. This game is the purest kind of fun I’ve ever had iGaming.

The game is pretty much exactly how I remembered it. Walk in a straight line and beat ’em up. What more could you want? Even today I still almost exclusively play as Wolverine or Night Crawler, just like I did more than 20 years ago when I was a five year old at the bowling alley or pizzeria or grocery store or any other place that had this machine.

Even as I sit here writing this I went into the game to check on something and ended up playing through a level.

Go buy this game today. It’s only .99 and worth every last one of those pennies. You can find it in the iPhone App Store.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: More Information and Visuals

Information has recently hit the web that initially Capcom was to release Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as a dlc expansion. As of now UMvC3  is still set to be a that full priced game.

Recent comments have been circulating around Google+ stating  that Activision is critically bashed for their dlc being priced so high($15). But, it pales in comparison to Capcom releasing an entire new game when they could just release a dlc add-on.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 will feature, 12 new characters, 8 new stages, and other small tweets to the game.
